I would recommend Spark plugs, plug wires, fuel filter, possible air filter, and distributor cap and rotor (if equipped). Hope this helps.

Accura 1996rl starts, goes few feet and loses power as if not getting gas


The following are the general instructions on the start of diagnosing any electronically controlled engine or transmission problem.

The engine and the automatic transmission (transmission control is only for automatics, engine is still computer controlled no matter the transmission type) in this vehicle are computer controlled and in most cases when a fault occurs a fault code is stored in the memory of the computer control module. There are exception to this, such as the Mass Airflow Meter and fuel pressure problems. What must be done is to have all the basic testing done such as a scan of the system for fault codes as well as a check with a live data scanner tool for engine functions that are not within range of normal, a trained technician is required to know what is correct and what isn't, then based on careful diagnostics done from a factory repair manual the correct part is replaced or the wiring repaired or the computer replaced (known as the PCM), which is very rarely the problem. Other basic checks must be done as well such as mechanical problems with the engine as well as engine state of tune and mileage on the engine. The transmission can have mechanical issues as well such as no gear engagement at all or a failed pump or other pressure related problems. Also engine mechanical problems ca cause many drive-ability related problem such as rough idle and other symptoms

I HAVE 1996 ACCURA TL 2.5 I NEED THE CODE FOR THE RADIO THE SERIAL NUMBER OF THE CAR RADIO IS 94A103119


Code is at 3 places in your car, hopefully one is still there . look in orig. book, front or back s/b written. second in glove box, a white sticker. never there!
best bet it under cover of fuse box in front under hood passenger side (R) has relays for ABS, should be a sticker under lid. usually still there. otherwise pull radio and get serial # . good luck.

1996 plymouth voyager mini van engine stays on, 500.00 complete tune has been done engine light went off but came back on less then a mile from Pep Boys.


A tune up in most cases has nothinf to do with a check engine light, unless the engine is missing, go to Autozone or Kragen auto and ask to have the OBD system checked for trouble codes, then post them here and we will look at them, the test by the way is free.
